New beginnings! During our 90-minute consultation, we will discuss your visions for your future and home. This phase is all about setting intentions. I guide you in creating a strategy and follow up with a design proposal.

You're making the next step toward your goals. You'll complete the contract and once completed, you'll receive an invite to the online studio where the magic happens!

Within the studio, you'll complete decision making that aligns with your intentions. Complete the questionnaire, upload images and measurements plus share your inspiration. You'll also begin the search for contractors and vendors!

This phase is all about refinement and making mindful steps toward goals. You'll start implementing the holistic strategies and practices we discussed in the new moon phase to shift the vitality of you life and home.

Release and seal of intention so that I can begin my work. I create a space plan based on the information you provided to us and the strategy for the best possible use of space. After we've established a concrete floor plan, we'll move onto the other layers of design. Patience here.

You'll receive your design delivery during a consultation and I want you to envision the future and really sit with the design. Practice gratitude and feel the abundance these changes will bring. The drawings will come in handy to print or email to vendors and contractors.

We provide support both during ordering and install. Ordering questions may include questions about quantities, quality or sizing. Install questions may include questions regarding my drawings or suggestions with unexpected situations.

Surrender, let go. A favorite part of our job, seeing the vision come to life! If feasible, we will set up an in-person session with you. I clear any negative energy, style the space, photograph it and you purchase any of the items you like.

Working with Chelsey was the BEST decision we made for our kitchen. We had a basic idea for what we wanted, but she took our vision and thought through all the details like what you would see from our front door and how the countertops would work next to appliances. She also shared our love of midcentury style, and helped marry mid century design elements with some of our practical needs. We gave her challenges and she took it all in stride. We always felt like Chelsey really heard what we were saying and translated our must haves into a gorgeous, functional space that works for actual cooking and daily use. We absolutely love the way our kitchen turned out.

– bridget + elijah

We have always done our own remodeling projects but we knew we needed someone with expertise and fresh ideas to guide us on how to get better function out of our old 60’s kitchen. We were impressed with Chelsey as she was professional beyond her years, gracious with our budget, patient with changes and full of ideas. She listened to how I wanted to use the kitchen. 

The kitchen is just beautiful! It updates our home and yet blends with the style in the adjoining rooms so that we don’t feel the need to toss out the old stuff…not yet anyway! The quality is obvious…in the design, the materials and craftsmanship. We can be proud of the work we did in our kitchen but we are even more proud of ourselves for choosing to work with Chelsey

Chelsey Preuss is an extraordinary, dynamic young designer who possesses standout design talent that you do not see every day. As a former associate and fellow affiliate within the Kitchen and Bath Industry, I have seen many prime examples of her inspiring talents and have long been impressed by her drive, creativity and work ethic towards designing and providing her professional guidance and service for her clientele. Chelsey has an outstanding eye for design and is extremely innovative with designs that go beyond traditional creative limits. She exhibits a maturity and professionalism when collaborating with those in her field and those seeking to build or remodel their homes. Without reservations, Chelsey is an asset for the design industry and a breath of fresh air that any design professional or client can benefit from.

– danielle

If anyone is looking for an interior designer, I highly recommend Chelsey Preuss! Chelsey takes the time to understand your style and has the unique talent to turn it into something magical. She designed our master bath and is now working on plans for our kitchen, den and living room. And for those of you in MN, don’t let the fact she’s in Sioux Falls deter you from reaching out to her. She is able to work remotely!! You will love her creativity, professionalism, calm demeanor and non-pressure working style, which is exactly why we chose to work with her.

It's good to start the concepting process before closing if you want to remodel your new home sooner rather than later. We can start by strategizing with you through ideas and our questionnaires. If we are booked out, this allows you time to get on our schedule too.
